Starting a Business

Although not specifically arts related the most useful New South Wales online resource is http://toolkit.smallbiz.nsw.gov.au which has sections relating to: starting a business, running your business, growing your business , business planning, marketing and sales and management. However Arts Tasmania does have a number or recommended links and material specifically for arts and creative businesses. Its Arts Business and Artform resources pages is a collection of links to websites that may assist artists and arts organisations across all artforms to develop their skills, connections, profile and business practices. They are organised by art form including music, writing, design, performing and visual art and more as well as arts business links. The Business page http://www.arts.tas.gov.au/resources/arts_resources/business covers the areas of:

  • Organisational structures and starting an arts business
  • Business planning
  • Budgeting / finance
  • Project management
  • Legal
  • Insurance
